Even though the weather hasn’t quite cooled off yet, many are suffering from intense seasonal allergies in Dallas. In fact, the longer-than-normal hot weather causes seasonal allergies to be even worse than in average years. Texas has traditionally high levels of both ragweed and cedar, along with pollen, dust and mold, all of which can be irritating to so many of us!
So, if you don’t want to be sneezing and sniffling all day long, blinking through itchy, watery eyes and coughing all night long, IV therapy can be a great solution to help your body naturally flush out the allergens that are causing your allergy symptoms. There are also different vitamins within the IV therapy bags that will assist in easing symptoms.
Congestion, along with watery eyes, is one of the ways that our body responds to allergens, by using its own secretions to flush them out. So, it stands to reason that we want to maintain even higher levels of hydration when we are dealing with allergies, in order to give our bodies the best possible chance of moving the irritants out, where they belong! Adding our signature “Double Drip” or “Triple Drip” add-on can be beneficial to add that extra boost of hydration that our bodies can put to use!
There are also some key vitamins and minerals that have been proven to be helpful to our bodies when suffering from allergies. Vitamin C is powerful is many ways for your health. But as it relates to allergies specifically, it works to block the formation of histamine. Histamine is produced in the body when allergens are introduced and is responsible for many of the annoying symptoms we feel during allergy season.
Another important and sometimes overlooked mineral is magnesium. Research has shown that healthy levels of magnesium are associated with lower rates of asthma and allergies because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Magnesium can aid in relaxing the muscles of the airways to help you breathe easier!
And speaking of breathing easier, we also offer oxygen therapy infused with eucalyptus. This essential oil is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and for its soothing effects on lungs and throat.
